This is very, very true. Again, a bank I visited used Notes with replication 
because in their environment (admittedly poor) replication was more reliable, 
and loaded the network less, than a centralized network service.

I've been telling people for years that they should look before they leap. 
Many of the more costly projects I've seen have resulted from poor planning, 
poor analysis, or inappropriate use.
